LOFT DISTRICT Twin or Long throw quilt 64 by 83 inches
I used an eclectic collection of modern designer prints and an abstract overlapping rectangle design to create this contemporary throw quilt with mid-century design appeal. The patterns of the fabrics include faded bricks, retro stars and diamonds, leaves, cityscape, pixels and grids. The main colors are navy, red, pink, orange, blue, purple and green — all set against a background of brilliant Kona cotton White. The abstract, minimal design of overlapping rectangles plus the unique fabrics give a groovy, mid-century feel to this quilt. A perfect addition to your contemporary home. Because of the long length, this quilt would work well on a twin-size bed or as an extra-long throw in your living room, bedroom, patio or reading nook. Or hang it on the wall as a contemporary art piece with big graphic impact.
Using Isacord thread in Silky White, I stitched parallel lines with variable spacing across the surface of the quilt. The quilting gives a lovely, uniformly crinkled effect and creates a lush textured feel.
